Clearance questions

Post by JWILL on Sun Nov 29, 2015 3:06 pm

Swapped engines over the weekend and noticed a few things that do not look right... " />
I am fairly certain these are the correct parts, but it the oil cooler looks too close to the firewall and the cylinder tin shouldn't touch the transmission bracket. ..right? scratch " />

I think you firewall is bowed a little, that is normal. If it gets in to your fan opening its a problem. If you decide to change it, some of the new firewall material looks rigid until it heats up then it gets real floppy and bows in to your fan opening. You may have to add a screw and a washer for more support. Research the best one. That transmission bracket may not be the correct one for the trans, engine, bodystyle combo. You can grind a little off or find another one. Both of the problems should be ok for a little while. I would look at the swaps for a different trans bracket and replace it the next time you pull the engine.

Rgr. I'll check into any say on the firewall. I have also been encouraged to swap over to a 71/72 granny bracket- maybe I'll get around to that sometime in the near future, but I really don't want to pull the engine again anytime soon.
